I read a pretty interesting article today about NFL players using a spray that contains deer antler velvet extract to increase their stamina, get stronger and recover quicker during workouts. While the debate on whether or not this is allowable and if NFL players should be able to use the deer antler velvet extract is interesting. I think they are missing the bigger question surrounding this issue. Who in their right mind decided to experiment with deer antler velvet? I have picked up deer antler velvet before while hunting and I had no idea the power it contained. From now on it will be my afternoon snack!
